Jets-oilers
The New York Jets have inducted former sack-dancing defensive end Mark Gastineau and popular wide receiver Wesley Walker into the team's Ring of Honor at halftime of their Monday night game against the Houston Texans. The two were honored on the field as the third class of inductees, joining former Jets stars including Joe Namath, Curtis Martin, Joe Klecko and Don Maynard. Gastineau was a five-time All-Pro selection who played all 10 of his NFL seasons with the Jets, and holds the team record with 107 1/2 career sacks and sacks in a season with 22 in 1984. A fired-up Gastineau tells the crowd to not boo but to ''support your team!'' Walker played his entire career with the Jets, catching 438 passes for 8,306 yards and 71 touchdowns from 1978-89.

Tim Tebow tweets about 666 before ‘Monday Night Football’ game

Via Larry Brown Sports: Tim Tebow stoked some religious fires before the “Monday Night Football” game between the Jets and Texans by recognizing that this was the 666th edition of the program.

The Jets need to refuel their engines

At this point the Jets have no answers on offense at all. Tebow or Sanchez? Where’s first round pick from a few years ago in Shonne Greene. Santonio Holmes was their best offensive weapon and he’s done for the season. I think Antonio Cromartie was right when he said he was the second best receiver on the team. He beat Johnathan Joseph badly on a stop and go route on Monday...

Terrell Owens wants the Jets to know that he’s “ready, willing, & able!”

Terrell Owens needs a job. Terrell Owens wants a job. And as we’ve seen before, Terrell Owens will try any and every avenue to land a job.So it shouldn’t surprise anyone that Owens would be willing to literally beg the Jets on his Twitter account to call his agent and sign him to a contract.https://twitter.com/terrellowens/status/255494452678901760The Jets might as well sign...

Starting Tim Tebow Offers Jets Best Chance at Saving Season, Finally Determining If He Can Succeed in NFL

If you couldn't hear the chanting for Tim Tebow to start for the New York Jets, get ready for an earful on Monday night. As the Jets prepare to host the Houston Texas in Week 4, the team is prepared to play Tebow more after realizing that he has become the team's best playmaker. With Santonio Holmes sidelined for the rest of the year with a foot injury, starting "quarterback...

Why the Jets are keeping Tim Tebow on the sidelines

The New York Jets interest in Tim Tebow was surprising. Tebow won a slue of improbable games last season for a lackluster Denver team but with a career completion percentage of 47.5% he had only proven critics that he was not a traditional passer. Thus far the Jets have kept Tim Tebow on the sidelines for much of the season. While playing in the wildcat formation he has thrown one...

Does Woody Johnson care about winning?

Woody Johnson: no hair don’t care?I’d rather see Mitt Romney win this election than the Jets having a winning season. This is what Jets owner Woody Johnson implied when asked if he would you rather have a winning Jets season or a victorious presidential election for Mitt Romney?Organizations and teams that win championships, for the most part, have one thing in common. They have...

Jets tilt with Titans the ultimate gut check

It’s how you get up… Goodness I abhor sports cliches. But occasionally, they are virtually unavoidable. Or so I rationalize, as I pen these words. The Jets game against Houston tonight is the epitome of a “gut check” contest. We often throw out the relative “importance” of every other game on the calendar. Critical as it relates to the division. Monumental turning point...

Dustin Keller Out

New York tight end Dustin Keller is out for Monday night's matchup versus the Texans. Keller has been missed the team's last four games because of a hamstring injury.Fantasy Spin:Keller was the Jets' leading receiver a year ago but he has only been healthy enough to compete in one game so far in 2012. Fourth-year tight end Jeff Cumberland will grab the start in Keller's place.

Terrell Owens Trolls For a Job From The Jets On Twitter

I am not sure if this is the worst idea ever, or the best idea ever.  Terrell Owens who is currently unemployed took to Twitter on Monday night during the Jets and Texans MNF game to beg the Jets for a chance.  T.O. Tweeted the below, and you can even smell the desperation.  You have to respect the hustle, right?!?!#bbpBox_255494452678901760 a { text-decoration:none; color:#FF6C03...
